by Emma Grant

Rating: NC-17

Draco Malfoy returns to London after five years of self-imposed exile to start a new life with Harry. But will the secrets of the past destroy everything they've worked for?

Sequel to:
Left My Heart . This will make much more sense if you have read that first, though it probably can stand on its own to an extent.

Novel, about 150,000 words

Not my characters, no copyright violation intended.

1. Thanks to Jedi Rita, Hazel Hawthorne, and Charlotte Sometimes for betaing the first draft of this story a chapter at a time. Thanks to Jedi Rita, Little Snitch, Tip Gardner, and Lusiology for betaing the second draft (and to Lusiology for Brit-picking as well). HUGE thanks go to all the people who read and commented on the first draft of this story over the eight months that it was written and posted. I can't thank you enough for the support and encouragement! This is for all of you.
2. Even though the backstory of this fic only assumes canon up through Order of the Phoenix, I stole a few cool ideas from Half Blood Prince. Cause they were cooler than mine...
3. Links to art can be found in the text. (Look for underlined phrases.) Please note that an asterisk (*) denotes art that is NOT WORKSAFE.
